My Advice

Never stop learning, growing, or think you’re not good enough. Don’t get complacent and always work hard. Always surround yourself with people smarter than you and treat others as you want to be treated. Define your morals and values, set goals, and never stop working towards them. Lastly, always make sure to rest. Maintain balance and experiment on what works best for you. To maintain balance in my life, I surf and eat healthy. These two things have helped me tremendously to maintain balance and a healthy life.
